Top Cat is joined by the rest of his gang, including Benny the Ball, Fancy-Fancy, Spook, Brain, and Choo-Choo to bring you one of the most action-packed, mobile-friendly slots of 2016. There's the main feature – The Master Plan – which gives you access to five fun bonuses such as Dibble's Free Spins, Construction Site Wilds, and the Cash Picker Bonus, as well as four randomly triggered special features like Choo's Piano Wilds and Benny's Colossal TVs. But, wait – there's more! A Jackpot King progressive jackpot is also up for grabs along with the regular paytable prizes of up to five hundred times your bet!
More about the Software Provider
Blueprint Gaming is an online slots manufacturer whose offices are right here in the United Kingdom. It's part of a German amusement arcade entertainment business called the Gauselmann Group, and it's been working in the online casino industry since 2001.
Although Blueprint Gaming hasn't been around as long as old-timers like Microgaming and IGT, it's still notched up an impressive number of slots in the past fifteen years, including Jungle Jackpots – Mowgli's Wild Adventure, Ted, Kingdom of Wealth, Paws of Fury, King Kong Cash, Genie Jackpots, and The Pig Wizard.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Top Cat is set in the famous alleyway where the gang used to hang out in Hanna-Barbera's original TV series. In the background, you can see the smoggy skyscrapers and municipal buildings of downtown Manhattan, and in the foreground, there's the lamppost, trash can, and rickety wooden fence that the cats call home. Blueprint Gaming has given the game another touch of nostalgia by adding some of the gang's famous phrases to the soundtrack.
There are eleven paytable symbols that you can use to make winning combos, including T.C., Choo-Choo, Fancy-Fancy, Spook, Brain, a plate of fish bones, the Bonus, and four playing card symbols.
Bonuses and Special Features
The Plate of Fish Bones is the regular wild symbol in the Top Cat slot, and it can substitute for all symbols except the Bonus. However, there are a further four wild symbols which can present themselves when randomly triggered within the base game by T.C. appearing from the trash can:
Benny's Colossal TVs – Benny appears and presses the button on his TV remote to make a huge TV appear which adds a number of televisions to the reels. The reels then stop, and the TV symbols reveal a random mystery symbol;
Choo's Piano Wilds – Choo walks onto the screen as Brain swings in on a rope, causing a piano to fall on Choo's head. As stars float above Choo's giddy head, they transform into wilds on the reels;
Spook's Mice is Nice – Top Cat summons the mice with his whistle, and the mice then jumble up random symbols to make winning combos. Several wins can be created until Office Dibble ends the feature by turning up to investigate;
Brain's Water Wilds – Brain aims a fire hydrant at each of the reels to add extra wild symbols.
The game also has a mini-bonus called Fancy-Fancy's Hot Dog. If the special Hot Dog Wild lands fully stacked on the fifth reel, it awards a free re-spin with the wild held in place. Fancy-Fancy keeps moving the stacked Hot Dog Wild one reel to the left followed by a re-spin until he reaches Reel 1 and the feature ends.
The bonus symbol in Top Cat is the image of the gang, and when it appears anywhere on Reels 1, 3, and 5, it triggers The Master Plan. Select Plan A, B, C, D, or E to reveal which of the following five bonus rounds you get to play:
Cash Picker Bonus – a garbage truck drives onto the screen to drop off some bins. You keep selecting bins to reveal cash prizes and multipliers until Office Dibble arrives;
Maharajah Heist – in Stage 1, you choose a member of the gang to climb up the hotel and increase the total bet multiplier. If you reach ‘Big Money,' Stage 2 commences, and you throw a dice to move the gang around the board while collecting even bigger multipliers. But, if Dibble catches up with you, the bonus ends;
Diner Free Spins – unlimited free spins on a new set of reels. Whenever the special scatter symbol lands on Reel 5, the chef receives a new food order and changes the dishes on the table. The round ends when all of the food orders have been processed;
Dibble's Free Spins – free spins with a special wild symbol on the reels that can roam around the screen to help create wins. When two wilds collide on the same spot, they expand to cover the whole reel;
Construction Site Wilds – you get five reel sets with extra wilds. You start at the bottom, and you must try and collect as many Top Cat overlay stickers as possible to advance to the higher reel sets which contain more wilds. You also get additional free games for completing each level.
Finally, there's the Jackpot King progressive jackpot which can be won by landing five Jackpot King overlay symbols across the reels. However, before you can make off with the pot, you'll need to collect crowns during the bonus game, and spin the prize wheel to determine whether you receive the jackpot or a different cash prize.
Top Cat uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty paylines, and has an RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 92.493%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
